The Justin Lee (李宗瑞) sex scandal, which involved the socialite drugging and possibly raping several women has taken Taiwan by storm. Approximately 60 models and actresses were reportedly featured in the sex videos.
On the morning of August 16th, an unidentified netizen uploaded 9 more photos from Taiwanese heir, Justin Lee’s, pornographic photo collection, including a 1-minute and 13-second video clip. The poster uploaded the leaked content on Taiwan’s largest community forum, PTT Bulletin Board System. Almost a million comments followed after the topic was posted.
The user, identified as ‘M,’ used an IP address from the Czech Republic. The poster locked the topic, and told the users that if they want to see more photos and videos from Justin Lee’s collection, they had to figure out the passcode themselves.
Many users tried to protect the information from getting leaked to the authorities, but by 2AM, the entire topic was closed down, and it could not be viewed anymore. On August 15th, the police department issued search warrants to the homes of two PTT users because they requested ‘M’ to show them Justin Lee’s pornographic files. Tabloid magazines that previously published photos from Justin Lee’s collection were also interrogated by the police.
Justin Lee’s Ex-Girlfriend Denies Being ‘M’
A few days ago, the press caught Justin Lee’s ex-girlfriend, Cora, turning in a CD device to the police authorities. Cora denied that the CD was her sex tape with Justin Lee through her Facebook page, stating, “That CD is a computer device driver. The police are checking if there are more photos in it.”
Cora also denied that she is the one who leaked the new photos, “How can it be me?! I do not have any of them. The prosecutor will prove me innocent!”
Netizens Have Fun with Photoshopped Pictures
Two new photos that included the married ‘H’ and the model-turned-actress ‘W,’ were discovered by the media several days ago. Commercial star ‘C,’ girl ‘T,’ and model ‘L’ also became known victims. According to several reports, Justin Lee would record the real names of his victims, and categorize them from ‘A through Z.’ On August 14th, rumors spread that a children’s variety show host and another A-list actress were among the newly exposed victims.
Recently, a photo of a victim who resembles famous Taiwanese model and actress, Kelly Lin (林熙蕾), has been circulating online. Kelly’s agency denied that the photos were of Kelly, and most netizens agreed that the photo was in fact just an old photoshopped picture of Kelly.
Actress Alice Tzeng (曾愷玹) was also unfortunately warped into the scandal. With regards to Alice’s alleged involvement with Justin, the actress’ ex-manager replied, “Alice never went to nightclubs. She could not have known Justin Lee.” Alice’s current manager, Bingo, responded, “We’ve discussed about this issue. Alice said she never went to nightclubs. They never met nor contacted each other before.”
Three more intimate photos of Justin Lee with his victims surfaced online yesterday, but it was later proven to be photoshopped.
